Activity- “My Hero”
Each student receives a worksheet and the following instruction is given:
“Think of several people who are our heroes in our everyday lives. Those are people who help us, who we love and want to be like them. Choose one of those, regardless if it is a man or a woman, who you would like to be, and draw them on the piece of paper in front of you. Pay no attention to how well you have drawn them; what is important is the idea behind the drawing. There are several personality adjectives on the top of the page, and you have to circle out the ones that best describe your hero. If there is something you would like to add, you can write it in the blank space.
After the students finish they each present their drawing and read out the words they have circled.
The teacher writes the words on the blackboard, and to those words that are mentioned more than once, a number is added to mark how many times the word has been used.
1. Are there words that come up often when you described your heroes?
2. Which ones? Why would we want to be like them?
